Just like new Fins cornerback Cortland Finnegan, former Rams guard Shelley Smith reportedly visited the Miami Dolphins today. And just like his former teammate in Finnegan, he appears to be more than just visiting.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Smith has agreed to terms with the Fins.
Guard Shelley Smith, formerly of the Rams, agrees with Dolphins. 2 years, $5.5m. More Miami OL reinforcements.

The four-year veteran out of Colorado State played in 14 games last season at the guard position for the Rams, starting in twice. Smith is considered by many to be very physical, downhill type of run blocker. He played under current Fins offensive line coach John Benton his rookie year with the Houston Texans.
